Climate Change Impacts in Huong River Basin and Adaptation in its Coastal District Phu Vang, Thua Thien Hue provinceBy:
Project “Climate Change Impacts in Huong River Basin and Adaptation in its Coastal District Phu Vang, Thua Thien Hue province” Is one of components in the Netherlands Climate Assistance Program (NCAP), formerly the Netherlands Climate Change Studies and Assistance Program, phase 2 (NCAP2), which had been implemented in 14 developing countries on the world. This is a pilot research on climate change impacts on natural environment, water resources, socio-economic development and the most vulnerable population communities; at the same time it is a pilot case study on recommendation and carrying out the policy and measures to adapt to climate change.
The project regards the Huong River Basin in Thua Thien Hue Province in general and its lagoon population in particular. Future impacts of climate change on the water system and flows of the entire river basin will be projected in an integrated way. The social-economic focus is on the coastal district of Phu Vang in order to involve vulnerable stakeholders in preparing measures to adapt to the projected climate change impacts in their local area.
The development objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity of the sectors, institutions and people in province to adapt and respond to the climate change impacts in order to reduce their vulnerability to climate change and disasters by raising their understanding and preparedness, to foresee, minimize the negative impacts and losses. Through this, the project may also contribute to the implementation of Vietnam national strategy on poverty elimination and sustainable development. The results and findings of the project may be analyzed to develop a participatory climate change adaptation and integrated water resources model, which can be used in other basins and areas nation-wide.
